Car fire closes Route 6 westbound for a time

– A car fire caused a temporary closure of Route 6 westbound before the Sagamore Bridge. The fire was reported sometime after 4:30 p.m. Heavy smoke could be seen for a distance. Fire crews from Sandwich and Bourne were able to quickly knock down the vehicle fire along with a small area of brush. They were then able to get one lane of traffic reopened. No injuries were reported.

An earlier crash between exits 3 and 4 in Sandwich had already caused traffic to build up. One person was taken to Cape Cod Hospital for evaluation.
